Dined on Saturday, 4/10 outside. Nice patio covered with a white tent. Being able to make a reservation for outside is a plus too. Service was excellent from the hostess and waiter. Unfortunately, the food was mediocre. We used to love their jambalaya and pork chop. Neither item is on the menu anymore.

Friendly atmosphere, great food, wonderful location and outdoor seating was fun. Went for Easter Sunday, but any occasion would be good for this restaurant that has an extensive menu for any taste.

As always, the food was excellent. It wasn’t super crowded, but they must have been short staffed bc our waiter disappeared after our food came. We waited a long time for the check, then had to ask someone else to take our CC. Other than that, we were very pleased.

I have been to this restaurant before, but the service and food withdrawal quality have diminished significantly. Service was gruff and mostly unhelpful. I won't be going back.

The bread and cheese dip is delicious although it would be even better if the bread was hot when it was brought to the table.

Tray our server was great. This was my first time here and he made good recommendations. Food was very good. Only thing I would recommend is for the restaurant to post larger signs stating they are a cash free establishment. It was posted on the front door but the sign was very small and one would just walk right in not really paying attention. Maybe also have it on the tables.

Scheduled a business meal there and arrived to the restaurant being closed for covid. Wish they would have told opentable they weren’t open so I could have saved time and embarrassment. Will think twice before returning.

Covid has been hurting NYAJ's like many places. Every time we have been, service and food has been excellent. Spacing is very good. They do have heaters on the outside patio but it was so cold our last visit they weren't in use. If you don't want to eat inside, they do carry out too.

A go-to! The staff is friendly and accommodating. We originally reserved outdoor seating but requested last-minute to sit inside; they had no issues accommodating us and we didn't feel like a bother as a result. The food is fantastic, we have not been disappointed yet and like the variety and it's just plain delicious! Also, not only is the menu thoughtful to food allergies and intolerances, but the staff is on top of that as well. If you ask for the gluten-free option, they instinctively know to carry it over to anything else you might have ordered that contains gluten or specify when cross-contamination is an issue. Just a great place to dine all around!

Fantastic time with my beautiful wife. The Sirloin Tips and Salmon were excellent and we had sweet potato fries for an appetizer and the hot fudge sundae for dessert. We had a bottle of Chardonnay. We loved everything. Relaxing place with great food.

Pleasant because we were the only ones in the tent on a slow night. We had dressed for outside temperatures and they provided space heaters.
The food was warm, and our server was kind. For those that are cautious about eating at a restaurant, go on a slow night, dress appropriately, and continue to take the recommended social distance guidelines.
